Your VA Application
Your Next Step Toward VA Benefits
Allsup provides assistance during the VA appeals process, after you have applied for benefits on your own. If you're denied benefits or don't receive a fully favorable decision from the VA, Allsup will file an appeal on your behalf. In general, Allsup's paid VA-accredited Claims Agent could significantly improve your chances for a successful appeal. In fact, veterans who use a paid VA-accredited Claims Agent generally receive a higher approval rate and disability benefit rating than veterans who apply alone or seek help from Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs).
Where to Apply for Benefits
You can apply by completing VA Form 21-526, Veterans Application for Compensation and/or Pension. If you have any of the following materials, be sure and attach them to your application:
- Discharge or separation papers (DD214 or equivalent)
- Dependency records (marriage and children's birth certificates)
- Medical evidence (doctor and hospital reports)
Mail or take your application to your VA local regional office. Find your closest office here.
You also can apply online on the VA's website at http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp.
If you plan to appeal a decision on your VA claim, visit VA Appeal Help.
**The decision whether to grant benefits based on the veterans initial application takes an average of 270 days from the time the claim is received.
